Here’s a follow-up to the recent business about intelligent design. Since I do truly believe that the rounding-up and ‘re-education’ of non-Jesus-freaks is becoming more and more likely, I feel like I should skip town. My fanaticism for the US, on the other hand, dictates that I should move to the bible belt and start a life of vigilante rationality. Which will I choose?
I think I may stage a Constantinian mass conversion. I’ll go Protestant, get elected President, go to war, and then receive a vision from the spirit of Newton which will tell me that I will win the battle through the mighty influence of the mysterious and sacred powers of physics.
